2021 Career Education Convention!
We are excited to host the 2021 Career Education Convention in Grapevine, TX at the Gaylord Texan alongside CCST. This event has become the largest gathering for leaders in postsecondary career education across America to listen, learn and engage with thought leaders in the field. Including various keynote speakers, idea generating opportunities, educational sessions and networking connections, the 2021 Convention will not disappoint!
We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic in order to plan a safe and successful event for all attendees. Because of this, CECU will be postponing the schedule for booth and attendee registration to Spring 2021 in order to make the best possible decision regarding the event.
If you have questions regarding the the Convention or other CECU events please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

If you receive inquiries from a third party to book hotel reservations, this constitutes an interference with CECU’s contractual agreement with the hotel. In addition, CECU has no recourse for reservations made through a third party. These inquiries are misleading solicitations to CECU’s attendees and exhibitors, which are not authorized by CECU. These companies have no affiliation with CECU. Please do not respond to these attempts. All CECU endorsed and negotiated housing options are posted here on our website.
